I remember Garcia talking extensively into the mic during the extended intro, as I was standing no more than 35 feet away from him at this point. Obviously he was trying something different with this Wharf Rat. It might not have come off totally perfectly at the beginning, but it's not the worst Wharf Rat I've heard. And it's better than almost any version of Crazy Fingers ever performed.

[PK: Yikes! You don't like CFingers? Actually, I always preferred Peggy-O, and somehow think of the two in the same spirit...Though I can appreciate a good CF, it never really got me going either.]

Excellent thread, all. Loved reading the stories.

Like some others, I cannot bring myself to listen to the shows/songs listed above, esp WRat.

I stopped going to shows in 82, and have only listened to one show post that date: Dire's 9-18-87 (I think that's it?), and a couple of tunes from the 90s that came highly recommended.

Suppose it's a good thing for me to stay obsessed with 68...

Johannablowme.

If you listened to the 95 Wharf Rat like I did, then you'll need some mojo to right your ship. Take a listen to today's Dew from 83. Picture perfect.

I like the song itself, I've just never ever heard them perform a good version of it. I've heard some passable ones from 89-91 period, but not anything that impressed me. I would challenge anyone to find me a version where Garcia nails the lyrics and doesn't hit at least two serious clams during his solos.

Can't help it, this whole thread made RUN DMC "Your Blind" pop in my head.

The moral to the story may not be clear
And the only way to catch it is to lend an ear
Stop frontin so hard, why don't you peep your car
And your goals in life may not be far
Because these words I say are meant for you to hear
So if you bust these facts you will persevere

You're blind
You're blind, And you can't see
You need to wear some glasses like DMC
You're blind, And you can't see
You need to wear some glasses like DMC
You're blind
You're blind, And you can't see
You need to wear some glasses like DMC
You're blind
You're blind, And you can't see
You need to wear some glasses like DMC
You're blind
You're blind, And you can't see
You need to wear some glasses like DMC
You're blind
You're blind, And you can't see
You need to wear some glasses like DMC

I can remember when those were $9 a pair: four choices--white or black, low or high.

What a time...hmmmm...It was 1968! Seriously...

I was too far away to see that, but thought the extended intro was kind of interesting. Somehow I don't remember noticing the train wreck where they had to fix the tempo. At the time I actually enjoyed this show and went home reasonably happy, unlike a few other shows like 3/17/92, 6/14/92 and 8/3/94. On tape I don't think the show is all that bad. Jerry sounds reasonably coherent during most of it, and not completely lost and struggling like on some other shows of that era.
